Based on exclusive interviews with 40 celebrated players, past and present, Legends of Irish Rugby is a veritable who's who of the sport. The top personalities of the Irish game take you behind the scenes to offer a unique perspective on their human and sporting dramas. Immortals such as Jack Kyle, Willie John McBride, Tony Ward, Brian O'Driscoll, Gordon D'Arcy and Paul O'Connell bare their souls to reveal themselves as men of vision, passion and dedication - men who, through their glories, disappointments and dramatic deeds, have inspired others to realise their dreams. In this engrossing and entertaining account of the bittersweet history of Irish rugby, these powerful personalities offer startling insights into some of the sport's most controversial moments - from the assault on Ronan O'Gara during the 2001 Lions tour to Gary Ella's tenure as Leinster coach. They also express their opinions on the most important issues facing the game today - from Brian O'Driscoll's hair to the role of the coach and the future of the sport itself. Their take on the times is often as comical as it is insightful. Irish rugby has produced many extraordinary characters and left us with a treasure trove of funny stories, most of which are recalled in this book, including Peter Clohessy's visit to the dentist and his Frank Sinatra impression; the curious incident of Mick Galwey's shorts; Geordan Murphy's unique insights into Austin Healey's recreational activities; Victor Costello's experience of crime and punishment; Keith Wood's tall tales and much, much more. Compelling, informative and above all humorous, Legends of Irish Rugby is by far the most revealing volume yet on one of the country's favourite sports.
